School Bells Ring!

Columbia, SC schools start this week...
Schools have started in the Greater Columbia area this week. Please be sure to drive carefully in the vicinity of schools and school buses. Slow down and observe lower speed limits near schools (the cops are watching) and remember to NOT pass a stopped school bus.

I have a "School Districts Links" page at my Columbia "A to Z" website with Columbia area school district links and much more. Click Here to visit.

On this web page you will find the following informational links:
  • Columbia area public school districts
  • Columbia area private schools
  • S.C. Department of Education links
  • "Cool" Homework assistance/Other educational links
  • Links to "529 Plan" info, including the S.C. Future Scholar
    College Savings Plan, and South Carolian LIFE and HOPE scholarship programs


If you're a parent of a child (especially very young child), you SHOULD investigate UPROMISE. Very simply, this FREE program turns your everyday spending into college savings for your child or children. Hundreds of companies (Amazon, Sears, Best Buy, Exxon, CVS, Publix, Piggly Wiggly and many more) will contribute to your FREE account when you make a purchase (some only with online purchases). Earn by registering your credit cards and grocery cards in your free online account or by shopping online. You can also get others registered in your account (like grandparents or others without their own children using Upromise) to help accumulate money for your child's college account. NOW is a great time to sign-up as UPROMISE has a $100,000 College Dream Sweepstakes effective through September 30, 2008. Visit my schools web page and click on UPROMISE to get started.
